A Writer On Writing: Poetry Competitions

Sally Jenkins brings details of three poetry competitions.

The library was full of leaflets for poetry competitions. I only do poetry very badly so I won’t be entering but here are the details for the rest of you.

Sonnet or Not organised by Cannon Poets. http://www.cannonpoets.co.uk/ Choose one of the traditional sonnet forms or experiment with alternative 14 line forms. First prize £250 and entry fee is £4 for the first poem and £2.50 for each additional poem. Closing date is 31st October 2011. For full details email martin@cannonpoets.co.uk.

Nottingham Open Poetry Competition. First prize £300 and entry fee is £3 per poem or £10 for 4 poems. Closing date is 6th September 2011. Full details plus last year’s winners are here. http://nottinghampoetrysociety.wordpress.com/competitions/
